An earlier CityClub forum called “Building a Culture of Philanthropy” examined the foundations of philanthropy in Seattle over the last 50 years. Now, a panel featuring Kristen Eddings, co-founder of Agency, an initiative of the Washington Global Health Alliance; Nadia Eleza Khawaja, co-founder and CEO of Jolkana; Paul Shoemaker, Executive Connector of Social Venture Partners Seattle; and Brian Arbogast, a founding board member of Progress Alliance of Washington, explores the trends and leaders who are redefining philanthropy by targeting engagement as well as giving. How do today’s philanthropists cross borders between local and global giving? How do they use digital tools to democratize participation and communications? How are priorities decided? The discussion, moderated by Philanthropy Northwest CEO Carol Lewis, follows this important conversation from the wisdom of the past to today’s best practices and tomorrow’s possibilities. Presented by CityClub.
